completely changed. president obama arrives tomorrow. chris christie surveyed the damage from the air and then consoled storm victims on the ground. >> it's a very difficult day. very difficult day. >> the scope of this storm is absolutely stunning. aside from delivering high winds and driving rain, it was also dumping snow on areas of west virginia. the cleanup from sandy has just begun. state and federal officials are urging patience. the full extent won't be known for weeks to come. we have two reports tonight. i'm joined by news correspondent jay gray live in battery park in lower manhattan. also with us is correspondent ron allen who joins us from point pleasant beach, new jersey. mr. gray, great to have you us with tonight. you are right at the heart of the devastation in lower manhattan. how are the people dealing with th that? a lot of people have evacuated, but there are still quite a few down there. >> reporter: it was really interesting o to see how that played out today. i think there's still a stunned silence here. the power is out. the traffic lights are out. there's no
down. governor chris christie calling the damage unthinkable. in maryland, hundreds of thousands still without power. the resort town of ocean city hit with the worst of the damage. sandy, well, she's not finished with us yet, so where is the storm now and what are her plans for us? meteorologist rick reichmuth is tracking sandy in the extreme weather center. rick? >> greta, look at the size of the storm still, about 1500 miles across. if you go up across parts of maine and get across kentucky and across parts of georgia and south carolina, it's about 1500 miles. this is the big population zone along i-95 back towards chicago, the precipitation is less significant than last night. lighter rain, not like the heavy rain we saw yesterday. the snow is lighter as well. a couple of things you notice on the radar, still a couple problems. in right here across parts of new england now, there's been some very heavy rain and a bit of flooding and the threat for severe weather, even tornadoes across parts of new england during the evening hours tonight, but the snow continues to fall as well, and
if you've seen the words of governor chris christie. he had some high praise for the president. does that have any impact, a republican governor, and one who is quite popular within the party and certainly is quite colorful. does that have any impact at all on the race at this point? >> look. people understand that chris christie's job is to try to protect the lives, the families, and the property of the people of new jersey, and to try to turn around what's happened and get started in a recovery mode as fast as they can, and that one of the resources is the federal government. the federal government has a large program, particularly in the next few weeks, and so any governor of either party should treat the president with respect, and i can tell you when we dealt with bp oil spill and this administration, if we thought the administration or the government was not doing something well, we didn't go out and say it on television. we took it up with them quietly and said look, we think this is a problem. we think this needs to be changed. so it would be really bad governance for any gov
showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundation and left parts of the coast under water. new york city also dealing with devastating floods. the subway remains closed after damage to the system was called the worst in its 108-year history. meanwhile, massive fire in a beachfront neighborhood in queens, new york, destroyed nearly 100 homes overnight and into the morning. firefighters have been blocked from getting to the fire due to the high floodwaters. and as we told you yesterday, a construction crane that collapsed due to high winds remain dang top a 74-floor luxury high rise, thousands were ordered to leave nearby buildings. nearly 8 million homes are still without power today across 20 states. the worst of it is in new york, new jersey and pennsylvania. right now i want to bring in dillon dryer. thank you for joining us. just run through a brief outline of what's going on. give us a sense of the depth and the duratio
and down the jersey shore with the jersey governor chris christie. republic and democrat working together. we'll have more on that in a minute. as you know this storm affected tens of millions of people up and down the east coast, as far as inland as chicago. the hardest hit states by far, new jersey and then new york. this is new video of an nypd helicopter crew rescuing stranded people off the roof of a house in staten island. the home surrounded by some pretty deep water. and, remember these pictures of the firestorm. breezy point section of queens. they are really stunning. it burned out of control for hours on the night of the storm. we'll take a look at these new and staggering aerials of the aftermath. about 100 homes in the middle class community burned to the ground. witnesses say it looks like a world war ii bomb attack aftermath. today, new york's governor and drew cuomo says the state is doing everything it can to help. >> i can assure you everyone is doing everything they can. they are all working very, very hard. but these are significant challenges that we're facing. and pr
. staten island now stands at 12 out of a growing death toll of about 60 americans. chris christie was with president obama today, touring some of the communities in ruin along the shoreline. both politicians and leaders going out of their way to emphasize that day three of this natural disaster is still no time for partisan politics. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the coastline. we were on marine one together, and we had an opportunity to discuss it it at length. go to the shelter, have him see people's concerns. we have lots of challenges. challenges now to get back to normalcy. so we need to get power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinks water. hospitals are taken care of, and that we get kids back to school. i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help give us those things while we're in the car riding together. he worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, it's been a great working relati
that chris christie, if i can be political for a second in the midst of this, chris christie is the guy who gave the keynote address at the republican convention. and chris christie has nothing but -- has had nothing so far nothing but good things to say about the president. that's nothing the president needs to talk about. that's nothing any of his aides or advisers or campaign people need to talk about. but it won't go unnoticed as chuck says in this media environment. >> let's look at what governor christie of new jersey had to say today on the "today" show and on "morning joe." >> i was on the phoned a might nid again with the president personally. he's expedited the declaration of new jersey as a disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over this and deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely needs it. it's been very good working with the president and his administration. >> he also responded
, it is not halloween because it cannot be halloween ever. today governor chris christie postponed halloween today by executive order for the whole state of new jersey, the state hardest hit by hurricane sandy. they will be moving halloween to monday, monday, november 5th, in order to protect new jersey's young trick-or-treaters from floodwaters and live wires and downed trees. these crews were fixing fallen power lines in toms river, new jersey, today. nearly 2 million households in new jersey are still without electricity today, day three. for reference in terms of how much of the country that means, even if there were only one person in each of the new jersey households without power, which is t isn't true, even if it was just one, the number of households without power in new jersey means there are more people in day three than the population of each of these states that is marked on the map this is a huge number of americans we are talking about here. and this is not over. this is not something that is done. it is not past tense. widespread flooding is still present. and the national guard to
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>
at least most of the eastern united states and today new jersey governor chris christie called it devastating beyond anything he ever thought he'd say. we can all agree on this. there's a whole lot of work to do in the days ahead. >> reporter: point pleasant beach one of many seaside communities up and down the new jersey shore that saw extensive damages from hurricane sandy as it blasted ashore. hurricane avenue is now covered in sand and debris. this is just one of many communities now dealing with the aftermath of this powerful storm. >> the level of devastation at the jersey shore is unthinkable. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie is stunned by the extent of devastation in his state. the familiar atlantic city boardwalk is in shambles, entire neighborhoods washed over as search and rescue crews scoop up stranded residents by the boat load and crews working around the clock to clear out debris fields that are 7 feet high in some places. >> i anticipated last night given the nature of the winds and the rain we'd be pretty bad. i didn't expect it to be that bad.
dozens of evacuees. governor chris christie blamed atlantic city's mayor, who says didn't do enough to let people know they needed to leave. >> i hope and pray that there won't be any loss of life because of it. >> reporter: from sleepy beachside communities to the nation's capital and new england, sandy was unrelenting, bringing down everything from mammoth trees to utility poles. a coast guard rescue took place after the "hms bounty" sank. in allenhurst new jersey cbs news cameras captured waves crashing against a beachfront restaurant before the building collapsed. even houses on stilts no match. >> it's pretty bad. it's not over yet. so i don't know how much worse it's going to be. >> reporter: and there wasn't just rain. there was snow. whiteout conditions in some spots. sandy may be slowing down but the twin threat in the east from inundating rains and historic flooding is far from over. and there is more evidence of that in moonachie, new jersey this morning just outside new york city. rescues and evacuations have been under way today after that city
the governor there, chris christie, came to loggerheads with the mayor, the democratic mayor of atlantic city because the governor said everyone clear out of the coastal towns including the famed and those prone to flooding, and the mayor essentially said, no, you don't have to, obviously the folks needed to be residued and they were vulnerable to the flood and it caused some problem between the two. what is if you are a citizen in a state where the governor, the mayor, might be arguing you might say the better part of valor is take the most cautious and safe stand, right? >>guest: not only the most cautious and safe but i would say this, the response to this disaster has been very good. it has been good. but when governor christie who is a great guy, and this mayor, who i don't know at all get into a spat that spat understoods to be done behind doors with one message sent to the public. at this time i encourage everyone and i am certain that mayor bloomberg could disagree because he thing he is in control of the city and he really is, the people ought to listen to the governor. let me tell y
, and it's still going on. having chris christie as a de facto unintentional surrogate doesn't seem to hurt obama one bit. it probably seems to help him. >> what is so interesting, you said chris christie, de facto endorser of obama. you've got this new article exclusive from politico saying there were people on governor romney's team who believed that chris kri city was the vp choice almost until the very ending, and surprise it's ryan. isn't the timing interesting? >> it's a little too interesting. look, there are two ways to react. governor christie says i'm doing my job. the president is doing his job. we're working together and i'm being honest. you have to respect that. look at two different examples. haley barbour who went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory
. yesterday new jersey governor chris christie had a plea to new jersey residents, those who live along the coastline saying you jokers standing in front of your house in army fatigues saying i'm going to weather this storm, i'm not leaving. you better. those jokers who stayed bad that needed rescue could end up with bills. they said earlier today individuals in mandatory evacuation zones who needed to be rescued. they themselves could end up with a bill. these state governments will be severely in debt after they go through their own rescues here, they could say to the individuals you have to foot the bill. we didn't just tell you leave, we urged you to leave. that's new jersey state governor, and new york governor and mayor. >> we're running short on time here. i want to get this question in here. i don't want to see there's an upside or silver lining to this because there isn't, but i'm curious on the impact to the economy from this standpoint. look at the damage and repairs necessary. people just need to fix their homes and get them back to where they were before this. you consider
by sandy. he was accompanied by new jersey governor chris christie. here they are in a photo just released by the white house within the past hour on marine one. the president said he will help. >> we are here for you and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> the iconic boardwalk and seaside heights, new jersey, is just one of the places the president saw today. it's a landmark made famous by bruce springsteen, mtv and "the sopranos." this is before and after, to give you a sense of what's happened. it's not even all there. you can see the rides including the roller coaster have been washed away sitting in the ocean. michael holmes is just across the bay in toms river, new jersey. you were in seaside heights, you toured it, what did you see? >> reporter: we went right up and down a number of towns there, ocean beach, normandy, and we spent a couple of hours there with the local police chief and i can tell you, it was absolutely extraordinary, the amount of damage that was done by hurricane sandy, erin. you know,
's worries about leaking fuel in some still-flooded towns. new jersey governor chris christie is promising the area will be rebuilt. he says it won't be the same, though. >>> and further from the east coast, sandy will go down as a massive snowmaker. one ski resort in west virginia reported three feet of mostly heavy, wet snow that was blown by 60-mile-per-hour winds. the weight of the snow was too much for some trees, many of which collapsed across roads, forcing those roads to close. >> the scope is just unbelievable. >>> once again this morning, our broadcast is dedicated to the latest on the storm and its aftermath. >> and so, we begin with abc's mark greenblatt. he's in hard-hit lower manhattan this morning with the latest. good morning to you, mark. >> reporter: good morning to you. and most of the lights here in lower manhattan do remain out. but in a sign that life is at least beginning to get back to normal, in just a couple of hours we expect normal trading to resume on the floor of the new york stock exchange, after a devastating storm. it was another night of no lights and no p
in even chris christie in new jersey, who he's touring with today, was very laudatory about the president. i don't think i can handicap this one way or the other who it would really help but it does take the campaign off the front pages for a few days, that's for sure. >> jim, we saw mitt romney in ohio yesterday helping storm damage victim, sort of blending the two, or did his campaign get put on hold? >> they're donating, instead of getting campaign know nation donations, they're giving it to the red cross. you have to be sensitive to what happened to the folks in new jersey and new york state. the president gets a break here, to be quite honest with you, because now he gets to fly to new jersey and do the photo op and pretend he's concerned about this. >> you're saying the president isn't concerned about americans? >> i'm not saying he's not concerned but if you look at what happened prior to the storm, he was running around america campaigning very hard and -- as was -- but my point was it wasn't working in the polls. his polls were going down so, this gives him the chance to be regal
this afternoon. he was tried by chris christie and quite a bit -- and craig fugate. afterwards, they visited a community shelter and spoke with several residents. the president promised residents that the federal government would not forget them, saying they are there for the long haul. >> we are not going to tolerate red tape. it will not tolerate bureaucracy. i have instituted a 15 minute rule on my team. you return everybody's phone call at the did 50 minutes. >> this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. it is been a great working relationship to make sure that we are doing the jobs people inducted us to do. >> this traffic jam is the result of demand for gasoline after the hurricane. motorists were backed up for miles. it waited -- the wait in some areas is an hour if not longer. if you are planning to run in the new york city marathon this weekend, the race is still a go despite widespread damage from sandy, including massive power outages and no subway. organizers are trying to assess how the storm might affect plans including transporting minors to the start line on staten isl
. >> eric: chris christie was entertaining delaying halloween. listen to him earlier today. look at the stress on this man's face. >> the level of devastation at the jersey shore is unthinkable. we know that there are many people who own homes who evacuated, who are going to want to get back on to the island to assess the damage to their homes. we are nowhere near able to let you back on to the island. >> eric: as a new jersey -- i live in new jersey. i'm glad i have that man as my governor. >> kimberly: he is fantastic. he looks presidential. fortunate to have him and his response. this is one of the reason people love governor christie. he calls it as he sees it. he is one that will criticize if he thinks someone not doing the job right but quick to praise and he did praise the president for being accessible. >> bob: i want to add here that our brother eric bolling has a house on one of the islands. probably not there right now. i feel for you, brother. >> eric: who knows? take a look at the roller coaster. this is where the jersey shore, you know, that show that goes on mtv. t
to governors is, staunch romney sport new jersey's chris christie has. >> president has been outstanding in this. the folks at fema have been excellent. >> reporter: the female director looked ahead to next tuesday. offering federal assistance, generators and the like to states where polling places might still lack power. mitt romney was in ohio, not to talk issues. to collect cans. mitt romney backers brought food for new jersey. >> and i appreciate your generosity. it is part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. >> reporter: mr. romney had argued in a primary debate for disaster relief to be shifted to the state. even to nongovernment charities. would he kill fema? no answer today. >> reporter: the romney spokesman said the former governor believes states are in the best position to direct from the federal government. tomorrow president obama joins high profile republican governor chris christie for a tour of new jersey damage. political opponents brought together by the superstorm. >>> we are learning about an amazing story of survival that up fo
. this season, a good offense is the best defense. lysol. mission for health. >>> governor chris christie was >>> governor chris christie was visibly shaken after surveying what sandy had done to his state. >> new jersey's governor described how emotional it has been to witness all the loss. >> let me start with i just never thought i would see what i saw today, ever. i have met some folks there that obviously now have no place to live at the moment and are extraordinarily emotional. and what they wanted more than anything else was just, you know, to see me and to get a hug. we got back up into the helicopter and flew to the jersey shore of my youth, where we used to go all the time, to the boardwalk at seaside heights, and it is gone. the pier with the rides where i was -- took my kids this august before the republican convention, those rides are in the atlantic ocean. the rides my two younger kids rode this summer are in the atlantic ocean. the roller coaster, all of them. the stand in the middle of the boardwalk that sells sausage and peppers and lemonade is gone. and i looked for it t
when new jersey governor chris christie describes as unthinkable devastation. we saw that, we were there last night in asbury park. the task going forward is daunting, to say the least. seaside heights mayor joins me now on the phone. what are you contending with tonight? what is your number one priority right now? >> right now we're just trying to get through the evening. we were trying to secure some diesel fuel to keep the police station running and the borough hall which is the only building that has the power through the generator right now. we're trying to get over 100 gallons of fuel from oem right now. that's what we're doing at this time. >> the pictures are just horrific to look at. do you have any sense of the scope of the destruction? >> i'm glad that you have a picture because if you don't see it, you just can't fully understand it. as you're going through it, i'm not ashamed to say i'm overwhelmed. i feel so small against what we have to do going forward here. i'm going to need a lot of help from the federal government, the state government, the local government, the
: he said we would cut through red tape. that is important to us. gov. chris christie declared an emergency a couple of days before the storm hit. president obama signed a declaration that was a critical and necessary first step. we have seen in the past that sometimes the bureaucracy moves slowly and the people on the ground need to help. and they do not get as quickly as they should. the president very publicly to the whole nation, and of course here in my district, he had the director of fema with him. and he said there was to beat no nonsense and we were to cut through the red tape. he gives all telephone numbers to call. and if there was any problem some counties are still doing assessments. a friend committees did their assessment yesterday. we should have -- de front communities did in their assessment yesterday. host: will there be enough funding from fema to cover the damages? what did you think will have to deal with when you return from the lame duck session? guest: that is a question i am getting more frequently. we do not know exactly because we do not know the tot
